Twilight Breaking Dawn Nikki Reed Released New Singing Video With American Idol Hubby
Twilight Breaking Dawn Nikki Reed released new singing video with American Idol hubby. Recently,this new,camcorder music video (below),hit the net,and it features Twilight Saga,Rosalie Hale,starlet Nikki Reed,singing “Now That I’ve Found You” with her season 10 American Idol husband Paul McDonald.
It’s hard to believe that they hadn’t even met each other,this time last year. Now,they’ve already been married a couple months. Talk about moving fast. Anyways,the clip shows the two love birds,setting up to sing the song. Nikki cracks a few jokes as the crowd compliments her.
Then they eventually start singing the very loving song together for about 3 to 4 minutes. Afterwards the crowd gave them a huge applause. Nikki,also reportedly,tweeted photos from the event. Those two still look very happy,and quite in love. Good for them.
Lyle Lovett Makes Writer's Block Work for Him, Again, in 'Release Me'
How happy is Lyle Lovett to be wrapping up his 26-year tenure with Curb Records? Clues abound, not just in the telling title of his new album, “Release Me,” but the cover art, which has Lovett bound neck-to-ankle in a lariat.
One might also take a hint from the fact that he only wrote two of the album’s 14 tunes, which smacks of a “Contractual Obligation Album” (as Monty Python once titled a record). Then again, Lovett has been releasing more covers albums than not in recent years; since 1996, he’s only put out two collections of primarily original material, making him possibly America’s least prolific great songwriter.
You could draw three conclusions: He really does find writing “hard,” as he tells interviewers … or he really does love elevating the work of old bluesmen and fellow Texas songwriters … or he’s been trying to get out of his contract for about 15 years.
In any case, “covers” shouldn’t connote overfamiliarity when we’re dealing with someone with tastes as eclectic as Lovett’s. With the exception of an unnecessary reprise of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (left over from a 2011 holiday EP), nothing here will strike anyone as old hat, even if they’re wearing the battered Stetson of a die-hard roots musicologist.
Little-known Lone Star songsmiths contribute the two most tender keepers: “Understand You,” a lovely declaration that empathy should precede carnality, and “Dress of Laces,” a narrative song about an abandoned daughter that ends in fratricide.
Most of the set leans toward the lighter side. He puts a Texas-swing spin on two blues numbers that date back to the ‘20s and early ‘30s, “Keep It Clean” and “One Way Gal.” The traditional instrumental “Garfield’s Blackberry Blossom” serves to remind that bluegrass can sound just fine on electrified instruments, in the right hands. Townes Van Zandt’s hectic “White Freightliner Blues” gives almost everyone in his band a lead vocal or solo – and it’s the purest country he’s recorded since 1986.
Lovett’s two originals don’t argue against the idea that he’s being stingy and holding out on the good stuff, although “Night’s Lullaby” lives up to its name as a sweet bedtime ballad. And “The Girl With the Holiday Smile” is almost indisputably the best prostitution-themed holiday song since Tom Waits’ “Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis.”
If the penultimate “White Freightliner’s Blues” is pure Texas two-step material, get ready to take off your boots and kneel for the closing “Keep Us Steadfast,” a reverently rendered hymn by Martin Luther. It’s not surprising that Lovett also has great taste in 16th century songwriters. But we still need him to contribute a whole lot more of his own to the century-21 canon.

Will Lady Gaga Make a Cameo in ‘Men in Black III’?
Will Lady Gaga make her film debut with a cameo in the upcoming “Men in Black III”? The rumor mill is churning after Will Smith reportedly told ElCorilloRD.com about the Mother Monster’s movie role during a promo trip in Rio last week.
“We have a couple of celebrity cameos, but I cannot reveal who they are,” the website quotes Smith as saying. “We must keep as a surprise that Lady Gaga appears.”
Smith has been apparently sworn to secrecy about the other cameos in the film. A brief perusal of the “Men in Black III”
Spader played new Dunder Mifflin/Sabre CEO Robert California. He replaced outgoing manager Michael Scott, played by Steve Carell, after appearing at the end of the series’ seventh season. He then quickly earned a promotion to CEO.
According to “The Office” executive producer Paul Lieberstein, the departure is in keeping with Spader’s plans for the show.
“James always wanted this to be a one-year arc, and he now leaves us having created one of the most enigmatic and dynamic characters in television,” Lieberstein said. “He’s been a great friend to me and the show, helping us successfully transition into the post-Michael Scott years, and I’m grateful for that.”
Lieberstein’s statement notwithstanding, the current season of “The Office” has been marked by dwindling ratings, with the show hitting a series low of a 2.2 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic with its Feb. 17 episode. (The show’s ratings improved slightly for its most recent episode Thursday, climbing 13 percent in the demo.)
The network does not yet have specific plans for Spader’s replacement.
The “Office” turnover was first reported by Variety.

It probably didn’t seem that way in November, when he lost his gig producing the Oscars after a casually homophobic comment. But his stupidity saved him from having to perform the delicate dance the Oscars struggle more and more to perform each year.
To wit: Begging the people watching at home to go to the movies more, even as they celebrate films that don’t appeal to many of them. It’s a difficult task that comes down to finding the slim overlap of good and popular.
Sunday’s show was awfully boring, in part because it strived so desperately to be popular when it should have just embraced good. It played it safe by rolling out the same old tributes to old movies, which only created the impression that Hollywood’s best days are behind it.
The show made several attempts to educate and entertain at once. The least successful came when actors appeared in taped interviews doing what actors do worst: pontificating about the importance of their craft. (No one in the real world needs to hear Robert De Niro use the word “misery” again when describing moviemaking.)
But as bad as it was, it could have been much, much worse.
Ratner would have been a move toward appealing to the lowest common denominator. But there’s no appealing to the lowest common denominator in a year when “The Artist” happened to dominate.
You can’t remind people how much they love the movies by praising a movie most of them haven’t seen.
Ratner was replaced by the very skilled Brian Grazer. If this was the best show Grazer could produce, you can imagine how poorly Ratner would have performed the delicate dance. Just look at the drop-off in quality from the second “X-Men” film to the one Ratner directed. Balancing acts aren’t his thing.
But they shouldn’t be anybody’s thing. The funniest person at Sunday’s ceremony was also the one who most decidely chose a side. Presenting in the animated categories, former Oscar host Chris Rock ridiculed the notion that voicing animated films is hard. He imitated himself being fed his lines and shouting them — and then collecting a million dollars.
Rock may not have captured the mood in the room, but he said what everyone in the home audience was thinking.
Billy Crystal, who gamely took on hosting duties when Eddie Murphy bailed out with Ratner, could have benefitted from a similarly strong point of view. His best joke came at the expense of the Republican presdential candidates, as he compared them to Christian Bale’s menagerie of daffy and menacing characters.
But given his questionable decisions this year, maybe it was best that he stuck mostly to the middle of the road. A joke he probably thought was very safe — reviving his Sammy Davis Jr. imitation — set of a twitterstorm because he did it in blackface.
The night’s best performance was by far the riskiest: Cirque du Soleil performed a riveting aerial number. It didn’t even pretend to have a connection with this year’s films, but there’s no quibbling with people gutsy enough to do mid-air gymnastics.
One skit managed to celebrate Hollywood history while simultaneously celebrating artistic risk-taking. Christopher Guest’s band of usual suspects imagined a 1939 test audience critiquing “The Wizard of Oz.” The viewers agreed: Less Dorothy. Fred Willard wanted more monkeys.
The point of view, bluntly: Sometimes audiences are dumb.
And we are. But that doesn’t mean moviemakers should cater to us. It means they should lead us into danger. (Preferably while acting humble about it, and never complaining about anything.)
As it stands, the industry prefers to listen to and even act on our stupid insights about more monkeys. Because it’s in a tenuous position.
The same technology that has made it more appealing to stay home has made it less appealing to go to the movies. Screen creep has made televisions and phones increasingly valid options for watching films — and added ubiquitous cell phones to the list of moviegoing indignities. (Endless advertisements are also on the list, along with the talkers who have ruined movies since before talkies.)
Handing out the award for Best Picture, Tom Cruise had to keep a straight face as he praised “the shared experience of being in a theater with hundreds of other people.”
Maybe the academy selected Cruise to deliver that line because his “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” was the rare movie that actually benefits from being seen with an audience. Your neighbors’ gasps actually add to the soundtrack of its vertigo-inducing sequences.
But “Mission Impossible” isn’t the kind of movie the academy celebrates in the major categories. Not most years, anyway.
Every Oscars, academy members have to choose between praising crowd-pleasers in the hopes that doing so might encourage more movie-going, or highlighting smaller, more challenging films they actually consider good.
Unfortunately for this year’s show, this was one of those years the academy decided to go with good. While pretending good was also popular.
This isn’t a criticism of “The Artist.” It’s just that an awful lot of people won’t pay to watch a French-made film that’s black and white and silent. Not for the same price as “Ghost Protocol.”

While her debut album is set to arrive on April 3, Willow is currently penning new songs. “New music! I am gonna be a different Willow from now on ;),” she tweeted on February 24.
She added, “All I’ve been thinking about all day is lyrics… #depressing.I am with my friends and I keep staring in the distance writing songs I M H…”

'American Idol': Naked Steven Tyler and a Top 24 Is Set (Video)
Today, let’s all take a moment to thank the creator of the “American Idol” logo, since it spared viewers a look at judge Steven Tyler’s bare bottom Thursday after the “AI” judges named the last of the 24 semifinalists for this season.
Except there won’t be 24. Ryan Seacrest announced the judges will make it a top 25 this year. And then Tyler mooned fellow judges Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson and plunged into a pool.
Next week, one of four male contenders already booted from the competition will be reinstated, meaning 13 men and 12 women will begin live performances on Wednesday.
The contenders for the 25th spot: 6-foot-9 music teacher Jermaine Jones, Michael Jackson-soundalike David Leathers Jr., Johnny Keyser (who Lopez called a future star after his initial audition) and Richie Law, the cowboy who ruffled some feathers with his Hollywood Week bossiness.
Meanwhile, the top 24 semifinalists: Deandre Brackensick, Adam Brock, Baylie Brown, Hollie Cavanaugh, Hallie Day, Colton Dixon, Heejun Han, Creighton Fraker, Eben Franckewitz, Reed Grimm, Jennifer Hirsh, Haley Johnson, Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Chase Likens, Shannon Magrane, Aaron Marcellus, Phil Phillips, Jeremy Rosado, Jessica Sanchez, Chelsea Sorrell, Elise Testone, Erika Van Pelt and Brielle Von Huegel.

Sacha Baron Cohen's Hype Machine Scores With Fake Oscars Kerfuffle
Let’s hope Sacha Baton Cohen’s movie is funnier than his latest publicity stunt.
The faux outrage affected by the British comic actor and adopted by some media outlets over his nonexistent “banning” from the Oscar show is looking sillier by the moment.
Particularly so with the latest news Friday morning from show producer Brian Grazer that Baron Cohen is not only attending but will be participating in the show.
And he’ll be doing so as himself, not as his character from the upcoming film “The Dictator.”
That means that Baron Cohen most likely floated the idea that he wanted to walk the red carpet in character specifically so that he could turn the Academy’s understandable reluctance into a “ban.”
By doing so, of course, he could use the Oscar-week mania to whip up a little bit of early interest in the summer release.
And it couldn’t hurt in attracting a younger demographic that the Oscars so desperately covet.
The stunt is hardly uncharacterstic of Baron Cohen: This is, after all, the same guy who, dressed as gay fashion reporter Bruno, descended from the rafters at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards and landed with his bare rear end in the face of Eminem, who stormed out of the show.
The rapper later admitted that the whole thing was planned.
Even as Baron Cohen was using his film’s website to launch a mock attack on “The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Zionists,” Academy president Tom Sherak told TheWrap that the actor already had his Oscar tickets.
“We want him to come to the show,” said Sherak. “But we would like him to come as Sacha.”
Now Grazer has told Access Hollywood that Baron Cohen will indeed attend the show, and even participate in some unspecified way.
“He’s coming,” said the producer. “In fact, he’s even part of the, there’s a piece — he’s part of the show … as himself.”
This latest news comes on the heels of Baron Cohen posting a video in which his character, Admiral General Aladeen, delivered an ultimatum to the Academy.
“I warn you that if you do not lift your sanctions and give me my tickets back by 12 p.m. on Sunday, you will face unimaginable consequences,” said “Aladeen.”
Since Baron Cohen had the tickets in his possession at the time the video was posted, this is definitely a case of having your cake and hyping it, too.
And the chief consequence, which has been eminently imaginable all along, is that now more people know about “The Dictator” than knew about it three days ago.
Mission accomplished. Now, can this whole non-story please go away?
In an awkward, patently staged exchange, the “Borat” star claimed he was carrying the ashes of recently departed North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il, saying it was his dream to come to the Oscars.
Baron Cohen then spilled the ashes all over Seacrest’s black tuxedo before security guards pretended to drag him away.
The whole thing was light on laughs and heavy on publicity stunt.
Perhaps it played better on the carpet then it did on the boob tube, or maybe thanks to the magic of movie editing, it will be a hilarious outtake on “The Dictator” DVD.
The Academy had originally banned Baron Cohen from appearing in character at the ceremony, but relented after asking the actor’s team to inform them of his plans, so that logistical arrangements could be made to have the proper security and facilities ready.
“Our entire team was blown away by the movie,” Ortenberg said. “David Ayer is truly an auteur and his innovative approach to this mesmerizing story is certain to wow critics and audiences alike.”
The film uses handheld high-def cameras to tell the tale of police officers, gang members and citizens caught in the line of fire in L.A.’s South Central district.
“End of Watch” was produced by Ayer’s Crave Films, John Lesher through his Le Grisbi Productions, and Sinclair and Matt Jackson of Exclusive Media, who also financed the film, in association with Emmett/Furla Films.
“Open Road is fantastically well-equipped to distribute ‘End Of Watch’” said Ayer. “They are as passionate about the film as I am and share my vision for the film’s release.”
Open Road is planning a 2012 release.
Exclusive Media will retain worldwide distribution rights.
Batman 3 Christian Bale Spotted Dressed To Impress At 2012 Oscar Awards Last Night
Batman 3 Christian Bale spotted dressed to impress at 2012 Oscar Awards last night. Dark Knight Rises,Bruce Wayne,star Christian Bale made a grand appearance at the 2012 Oscars Academy Awards in Los Angeles,California last night at the Kodak Theatre,and looked dressed to the max in a sharp,dark suit & tie ensemble. He appeared to have a great time as he presented an Oscar. According to sources, Christian did not do any red carpet walking,and went straight inside for the show. At one point during the night, Christian hit up the prestigious stage to present the award for “Best Supporting Actress,” which Octavia Spencer ended up, winning for her work in “The Help.” The movies “The Artist,” and “Hugo,” took home most of the damn awards last night. Billy Crystal returned to host the fancy shindig. It was,of course, a very star-filled night,but boring as always.
TV personality Lenay Dunn has some hosting help from pop-sensation Adam Lambert on this week’s episode of MTV’s 10 on Top.
The beautiful blonde leaves her Nashville home three days a week to host the show in NYC and it has become a huge hit. Lenay tells In Touch that the American Idol alum, who has been promoting his new single, “Better Than I Know Myself,” has great style. “I loved his army green color gel manicure,” she says.
The spunky host also shares that it was “pure comedy” when the cameras weren’t rolling. “We goofed around so much during the shoot that we could make an entire episode with just the bloopers!”
The show airs on Saturdays at 11:30 am on MTV and focuses on the most texted and talked about young celebs.
Sunday, February 26th 2012 James Martin Slips A Dick Out
My ass is hung all the way over and this morning I nearly puked my liver out when I sniffed on a delicious piece of meat of the gods (see: BACON!!!). (The sweet nectar is a holy elixir from heaven, but I question my undying love for it when it keeps my mouth from sucking on BACON!!!!) Even though I can’t with food right now, I’d immediately put on a cum rag/bib and slobber all over the first course James Martin served up on Saturday Kitchen. I don’t know shit about James Martin, but now I know both of our craniums have permanent peen prints on them since we’ve always got delicious looking dick on the brain.
Pregnant Alessandra Ambrosio took some me-time by grabbing lunch with a friend at Porta Via in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Saturday (February 25). The Victoria’s Secret model seemed relaxed and in a good mood, smiling at the cameras as she waited for her car at the valet.
On Sunday night (February 26) Alessandra – who is expecting her second child with fiancé Jamie Mazur – attended Elton John’s lavish Oscar viewing party and met up with a fellow pregnant celeb.
George Clooney's Girlfriend Came To The Oscars Dressed As An Oscar
Even though George Clooney is basically a Best Actor shoo-in for his role in “The Descendants,” girlfriend Stacy Kiebler came to the Academy Awards looking like an Oscar herself. You know, just in case he loses, yet still needs some golden arm candy for the after-parties.
Brooke Burke-Charvet and her children Heaven Rain, 5, Neriah, 11, Sierra, 9, and Shaya, 3, were spotted in Malibu, Calif. on Saturday (February 25). The family were seen getting out of their car to have a day of fun.
According to Brooke - her kids were chatty during the ride. She wrote on her Twitter page: “In the car, listening to my kids tell bad jokes, I feel sorry for the driver. They haven’t stopped for a minute!”
Hollywood’s A-List Continues To Shine At The Academy Awards
Even though George, Melissa and Michelle already rocked the red carpet at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, they weren’t the only members of Hollywood’s A-List who showed up in style! From Oscar winners Jean DuJardin and Octavia Spencer, to fellow … Continue reading →
Weighing in at just over three hours, the 84th Annual Academy Awards may have been shorter than most in recent memory — but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t room for trimming. Here are five moments we could have done without.
As Emma Stone prattled on about how exciting it was to be a presenter, during her and Ben Stiller’s mega-awkward, laugh-deficient presentation moment, you may have wondered, “What is she on?” Soon enough, though, the true scenario became apparent: She had been saddled with an inane skit that even her acting skills couldn’t breathe life into.
The speech’s would-be joke revolved around Stone wanting to put on a big production, and Stiller, as an Academy Awards veteran who last appeared in “Avatar” blue-face, arguing that it’s better to cut to the chase. They should have followed Stiller’s advice.
4: Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr.’s Fake Documentary
If Paltrow and Downey developed any chemistry during the filming of two “Iron Man” movies, it sure didn’t come across during their clunker of a presentation speech, which saw Downey pretending to film a documentary about the presentation of an awards speech. The skit got one thing right, anyway — like 99.9 percent of documentaries, it was about as exciting as watching paint dry.
2: Longest Acceptance Speech for the Shortest Film
William Joyce and Brandon Oldenburg weren’t too big on the short-and-sweet concept while accepting for their animated short, “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.” But then, you have to remember that these are the same guys who made a movie called “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,” so pithiness clearly isn’t their strong point.
1: “If I See Myself on Screen, I Know That I Exist”
All those thoughtful quotes on being An Actor. Sample the above, from Gabourey Sidibe. These were spoofs on the self-importance that pervades Hollywood, right?
Let us glance back at the fawning profile of the Syrian leader’s wife in last year’s America Vogue
And so to a couple of Syria-related questions. Firstly, will Details magazine now reconsider its 2007 decision to place Britney Spears’s unemployed ex-husband at No 7 on its list of most powerful men on the planet under the age of 45 – a full 14 spots above President Bashar al-Assad?
The second inquiry relates to the excruciatingly fawning profile of Asma, Assad’s wife, published in last March’s issue of American Vogue (but now mysteriously expunged from the magazine’s website). Among other delights, the article touches on a visit to Syria by Angelina and Brad Pitt, to highlight the country’s work with Iraqi and Palestinian refugees. And it seems the Hollywood couple were struck by the Assads’ laissez-faire attitude to security.
"My husband was driving us all to lunch," relates Asma, "and out of the corner of my eye I could see Brad Pitt was fidgeting. I turned around and asked: ‘Is anything wrong?’ ‘Where’s your security?’ asked Pitt. So I started teasing him – ‘See that old woman on the street? That’s one of them! And that old guy crossing the road? That’s the other one!’"
The president joins in the punchline: “Brad Pitt wanted to send his security guards here to come and get some training!”
Mm. It feels like at least five minutes since the Jolie-Pitts have broken a silence on some world injustice or other – perhaps they would care to make their next lecture a reflection on their erstwhile genial hosts? A Damascene conversion feels vaguely overdue.
Weinstein Co. Considers Leaving MPAA Over 'Bully' Rating
The Weinstein Co. is so shocked and upset that the MPAA upheld the R rating of its documentary “Bully” Thursday, it is considering taking a leave of absence from the association.
The company had asked MPAA ‘s Classification and Ratings Appeals Board to rate the movie PG-13. The board’s tally was one vote short of the number needed to change the rating.
After learning of the board’s decision, Weinstein Co. co-chair Harvey Weinstein said in a statement that “The Weinstein Company is considering a leave of absence from the MPAA for the foreseeable future. We respect the MPAA and their process but feel this time it has just been a bridge too far.”
The company is not a member of the MPAA but does submit its movies to the association to be rated. It is now considering whether to stop doing so for a time.
The MPAA rated the movie R on the basis of language used in the film — language that young teens hurled at a 13-year-old.
“What makes the film strong is it’s honest and real and it’s what really happens,” Lee Hirsch, the documentary’s director, told TheWrap Thursday afternoon. “To create that barrier to young people seeing it is a disappointment.”
He said that “it’s the youth who are asking for this film, and they are the ones we need to activate.”
The movie tells the stories of five bullied young people.
Harvey Weinstein appeared before the appeals board with Alex Libby (above), one of the bullied children whose experiences are documented in the movie.
Hirsch waited in the hallway while Weinstein and Libby addressed the board.
“It was unbelievable,” Hirsch said. “When the doors open and Harvey and Alex walked out, literally, Harvey was crying.”
He said that Libby “gave an impassioned plea and eloquently defended the need for kids to be able to see this movie on their own, not with their parents, because that is the only way to truly make a change.”
Oddly, the board’s decision means that Libby cannot go, on his own, to a movie that chronicles the events of his own life.
It also means that schools are unlikely to bring students to see the movie.
In his statement, Weinstein said that the Cincinnati school district had planned to bus some 40,000 students to see the movie.
“But because the appeals board retained the R rating, the school district will have to cancel those plans,” Weinstein said.
One school that will show the movie is Los Angeles’s Fairfax High, which screens the movie for about 150 students on Friday morning.
Hirsch will attend the screening and participate in a question-and-answer session.
In a written statement, the MPAA said that ““Bullying is a serious issue and is a subject that parents should discuss with their children. The MPAA agrees with the Weinstein Company that Bully can serve as a vehicle for such important discussions.”
But it said that the association has to “acknowledge and represent the strong feedback from parents throughout the country who want to be informed about content in movies, including language.”
The MPAA statement said that “the R rating is not a judgment on the value of the movie. The rating simply conveys to parents that a film has elements strong enough to require careful consideration before allowing their children to view it.”
Berenice Bejo, Melissa McCarthy, Jennifer Lopez, Emma Stone and Viola Davis are among the bold-faced names already working their way into the Oscar theater.
Baron Cohen is not even a nominee, but he caused perhaps the biggest stir on the red carpet. The comic showed up decked out in his Muammar Gaddafi-inspired outfit from his upcoming film, “The Dictator.”
The British comic spilled what he claimed to be the ashes of Kim Jong-il on red carpet interviewer Ryan Seacrest. He then pretended to be carted off by security.
With the broadcast scheduled to kick off at 5:30 p.m. PT on ABC, momentum seems to be with “The Artist,” which is widely expected to capture the Best Picture statue — especially after its wins Saturday night at the Indie Spirit Awards — but there are always surprises at every Oscar show.
Could Martin Scorsese’s groundbreaking 3D film “Hugo” be an upset winner? Will Meryl Streep pick up her first Best Actress Oscar in three decades for her uncanny portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady”? Does Christopher Plummer (“Beginners”) have a lock on Best Supporting Actor or will fellow octogenarian Max von Sydow score a come-from-behind victory?
Jackson Rathbone and his digital series ‘Aim High' won the Outstanding Achievement in Writing - Original New Media honor at the 2012 Wirter Guild Awards, and the 26-year-old couldn't have been more proud.
“To pick up a WGA award, I mean, that’s amazing,” Jackson told Cambio at the Hollywood premiere of ‘Gone.’ “That’s a great honor, especially for a really young genre like new media with the web series.”
Jackson was also in attendance at the WGA event, which took place at the Hollywood Palladium on Sunday, February 19. He added that the cast and crew were “really excited for our writers” and that they’re “gearing up for season two.”
The Writers Guild Awards celebrates outstanding achievement in writing for screen, television, radio, news, and more. Watch Jackson talk about the win above, and get catch up on all of the ‘Aim High’ episodes here.
Gorgeous Heidi Klum was in Mommy mode today, escorting her kids to their Saturday classes in Los Angeles, California (February 25). Joined by her mom, the Project Runway host dropped her daughter Leni off at ballet and then took boys Henry and Johan to karate class.
It was a long day for little Lou Sulola, who snoozed against her mama’s shoulder as they made their way back to the car to head home.
Finally, Somebody Likes the Madonna Movie: Costume Designers Give 'W.E.' Top Award
“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” “W.E.” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” have won the top awards from the Costume Designers Guild, which handed out this awards season’s last set of guild awards on Tuesday night.
“Dragon Tattoo” was honored as the best costume design in a contemporary film, while “W.E.” won the award for period film and “Harry Potter” topped the fantasy film category.
“W.E.” (left), which alternates scenes set in the 1920s and ’30s with contemporary sequences, is the only one of the winners to also have an Oscar nomination.
In the past 10 years, the CDG has given an award to the eventual Oscar winner for costume design six times. All but one of those have come in the CDG’s Period Film category or its predecessor, Period/Fantasy Film.
Television awards went to “Glee,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “Downton Abbey.”
One of the winning costume designers from “Glee,” Lou Eyrich, was also given the Career Achievement in Television Award.
The Disaronno Career Achievement in Film Award went to Marlene Stewart, while actress Kate Beckinsale was given the Lacoste Spotlight Award.
The Distinguished Collaborator Award went to costume designer Deborah Hopper and director Clint Eastwood, who have worked together on more than 20 films over the past two decades.
Western Costume was presented with a Service Award honoring its 100 years of professional contributions, dating back to the silent era.
